This study intends to investigate the relationship between technology readiness and psychological well-being
with academic performance. The investigation utilised a quantitative approach and correlational statistical procedure. In
this study, the participants were students majoring in physical education at the Universitas Negeri Surabaya in Indonesia
(n=85). The current study adopted questionnaires to evaluate technology readiness and psychological well-being, whereas
test scores served as indicators of student academic accomplishment. IBM SPSS was employed to evaluate this study’s
normality and descriptive statistics. In the meantime, the Pearson correlation was utilised to test the relationship between
variables. A multiple regression analysis was run to examine the strongest predicator of technology readiness, psychological
well-being with academic performance. The results indicated a significant positive relationship between of technology
readiness and psychological well-being with academic performance (p-values≤0.05). Thus, it may be inferred that technology
readiness and psychological well-being components could be predictors of academic performance in physical education
for students. This study’s findings contribute to our knowledge and supply lecturers with information and scientific
insight into the significance of technology readiness and psychological well-being for university students.
